Motorola MC75A - Premium 3.5G Worldwide Enterprise Digital Assistant (EDA)
The next evolution in EDA power
Motorola’s MC75A takes its place as one of the world’s premier EDAs, offering more enterprise-class features and functionality than any other device in its class. Turbocharged with many Motorola Mobility Architecture eXtension (MAX) features, the MC75A addresses the top business mobility needs, offering maximum processing power, rugged design, flexibility in extending solution reach, data capture capabilities, connectivity options, security and manageability. Two options — 3.5G WWAN/WLAN and WLAN only — enable enterprises to standardize on a single device for workers inside the four walls and out in the field. Add a field proven ergonomic design that is easy-to-hold, easy-to-carry and easy-to-use, and you have maximum value in a minimum footprint — all at the right price.
The MC75A offers the most robust processing platform in the EDA class today, from operating system to memory architecture, including Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5; the fastest processor, the PXA320 @ 806 MHz; and 256 MB RAM/1GB Flash with a user accessible microSD slot to accommodate up to 32GB of additional storage. As a result, the MC75A delivers consistent desktop-like performance, regardless of whether your applications incorporate high resolution video, documents and images or you need thick client applications.
Motorola’s most rugged EDA
With Motorola MAX Rugged, you can count on reliable operation inside and outside the enterprise — the MC75A meets or exceeds MIL-STD 810G requirements for stress (drop) testing as well as IEC specifications for tumble and sealing. The MC75A is built to survive drops to concrete from as high as 5 ft./1.52 m. Motorola’s tumble drum test proves that the device can endure 1,000 consecutive 1.6 ft./.5 m tumbles (2,000 hits) — and still deliver dependable performance. And the IP54 sealing rating enables use in dusty environments and exposure to rain or spills. The result is a dramatic reduction in repair requirements and downtime, providing a strong return on asset (ROA).
The MC75A offers a level of flexibility that puts it in a class of its own, with a feature set that includes many Motorola-unique capabilities.
The only EDA to offer five keypads. Numeric, QWERTY, DSD, AZERTY and QWERTZ keypads enable maximum data entry simplicity for virtually any application anywhere in the world. Enterprises can standardize on a single device for many different workgroups with different application needs, simplifying the mobility architecture as well as reducing training and support costs.
Motorola Integrated Voice Solutions: unparalleled integrated voice interoperability. Inside the four walls, different workgroups often require different types of devices that run on different networks — from mobile computers and VoWLAN devices to two-way radios. The result is ‘islands of voice’ — the inability for cross-communications between device families. The MC75A eliminates this issue. The integrated TEAM Express voice client enables push-to-talk instant communications with other TEAM Express-enabled Motorola mobile computers, TEAM smartphones and two-way radios (Radio Link Server required). With powerful and highly cost-effective one-to-one and oneto- many voice communications between all workers inside the four walls, the enterprise enjoys lightning fast response times, improved productivity and decision-making — as well as increased customer service, satisfaction and retention.
Motorola MAX Locate for more robust location-based applications.
Integrated aGPS/GPS technology opens up a world of possible location-based applications — including real-time navigation, better fleet management, the ability to geostamp a photo for proof of condition or capture coordinates for proof of delivery in transportation and logistics or proof of service for inspections and maintenance. The best-in-class implementation includes the SiRFstarIII GSC3f/LP GPS chipset for robust coverage even in challenging urban canyons and areas of dense foliage, providing more users with location-based services in more areas. And the low-power chipset delivers top-notch accuracy with minimal power requirements, conserving battery power.
Enterprise-class motion sensing with Motorola MAX Sensor.
MAX Sensor enables business-class implementation of one of the most popular consumerstyle cellular phone technologies in the MC75A — the accelerometer. In addition to the typical ability to automatically switch between portrait and landscape display based on the orientation of the device, many additional features can be enabled in seconds, right out of the box. Power management features help ensure full shift battery power. For example, the device can automatically revert to sleep mode if movement is not detected in a specified period of time, or if the display is face down. The ability to detect and log drops helps increase worker accountability for device condition. And the open architecture allows enterprises to integrate the accelerometer data into customized applications that can help improve the safety of field service technicians working in remote areas and prevent device theft.
MAX Data Capture for maximum business functionality.
The ability to capture virtually any type of data and perform almost any business function ensures that the MC75A can meet your application needs today and well into the future. As the inventor of bar code scanning, Motorola offers unparalleled 1D and 2D scanning technology. The SE950 scan engine provides best-in-class 1D bar code scanning performance, while the SE4500, Motorola’s revolutionary imager engine, delivers equally stunning performance on 1D and 2D bar codes. And both engines offer omni-directional scanning, eliminating the need to align bar code and scanner, and providing the intelligence to capture even damaged and poor quality bar codes. The integrated 3.2 megapixel autofocus color flash-enabled camera enables the easy capture of high-resolution photographs, video footage and documents — complete with legible fine print.
Comprehensive accessory family expands solution reach
The Magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR) and Mobile Payment Module (MPM) enable workers to process purchases virtually anywhere in the world — from the retail sales floor to the customer’s doorstep. Third party peripherals, such as an RFID reader, enable users to leverage RFID data to streamline and error-proof inventory and other workflows. Motorola’s Bluetooth®-enabled RS507 Imager, worn on two fingers, provides hands-free scanning convenience. And a trigger handle allows workers to switch between handheld and industrial-style gun form factors in seconds, providing comfort for the most scan intensive tasks.
Maximum connectivity options
With the MC75A, your workers hold the universe of wireless connectivity options in their hands. WWAN functionality provides a connection to the fastest available cellular networks. Support for 3.5G HSDPA or CDMA EVDO Rev A provides workers anywhere in the world with high-performance broadband speeds. Comprehensive 802.11a/b/g support provides a seamless cost-effective WLAN connection inside the four walls and in hot spots — and support for 802.11a allows the granular segmentation of voice traffic, ensuring quality of service for VoWLAN communications. Bluetooth provides a wireless connection to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled peripherals, such as headsets and printers. Support for the latest Bluetooth technology — v2.1 with EDR — provides simple one-step easy pairing, improved security and reduced power consumption. And support for IrDA enables wireless communications with a wide range of existing business equipment — from medical equipment to fax machines.
Government-grade security with Motorola MAX Secure
The Motorola MAX Secure feature set keeps your data safe and secure, regardless of whether the MC75A is connected to the WWAN or the WLAN. Native FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification and support for the most advanced encryption and authentication algorithms as well as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) provides the compliance required for government level applications as well as stringent industry regulations — including PCI in retail and HIPAA in healthcare.
